ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 



The acreage, yield, production, monthly, and season average value, and cr(^ 
value statistics in this bulletin are official State and USDA estimates prepared by the 
Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The county and area detail in these statis- 
tics were made possible by the participation of the Department of Agricultural Ec- 
onomics, University of Florida, in the estimating program. Market price quota- 
tions and shipment statistics are from the Market News Section and the USDA Con- 
sumer and Marketing Service. 

Agencies in the Florida Department of Agriculture providing basic data used 
in develc^ing statistics in this siunmary Include the Road Guard Section, Division 
of Inspection; State Markets Secticai, Celery Advisory Committee, and Sweet Com 
Advisory Committee, Division of Marketing, the Plant Inspection Sectitm, Division 
of Plant Industry and the South Florida Vegetable Exchange. County Agents oi Flor- 
ida' s Agricultural Extension Service were very helpful in supplying information on 
vegetable production in their counties. 

Growers, shippers, processors, sales agencies, and transportation firms 
volimtarlly suj^lied much of the data used in developing these official statistics. 
This public spirited cooperation is appreciated.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



This bulletin contains detailed data on acreage, 
yield and production for only the past 3 seasons. Prior 
years can be obtained from the 1968 or earlier bulletins. 

A change in the definitions of harvested acreage, 
yield and production is the reason for the short series. 
Accurate estimates of acreage actually abandoned and re- 
duced yields due to low prices or other economic factors 
are difficult to prepare. Quantity actually sold has the 
greatest significance, therefore, this is now the basis for 
yield and production estimates. Estimates of economic 
abandonment will still be made but entered in footnotes. 

In the 3-year series harvested acreage, yield and 
production relate only to production actually marketed. 
Estimates for the earlier years in this series will be re- 
vised and included in a future publication. Those needing 
comparable historic production data can obtain them from 
columns labeled "quantity sold" in earlier publications. 

SEASONA L GROUPS— Seasonal estimates are made 
for most of Florida's vegetable, melon, potato, and straw- 
berry crops to show supplies for a shorter period of time 
than the entire marketing season. The seasonal classifi- 
cation used for each of Florida's crops is shown on the ad- 
jacent page along with usual planting and harvesting dates. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been planted for harvest during one designated season. 
To avoid duplication, acreage lost and replanted to the 
same crop in time for harvest,inthe same season^s count- 
ed only once. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage actually 
harvested or partially harvested. Acreage lost before or 
at maturity through natural causes is not included in the 
acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the average production of merchantable 
quality harvested and sold or utilized per acre. 

PRODUCTION includes the quantity actually har- 
vested and sold or utilized. 



ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is that portion of the 
crop that reached maturity and was of merchantable quality 
but was not harvested because of labor shortages, low 
prices or other economic factors, or if harvested, was not 
sold or utilized for those reasons. 

UNIT VALUE for production sold on the fresh mar- 
ket represents the F. O. B. price received or its equivalent 
for all grades and quality of the commodity including sell- 
ing charges. Unit value for quantities sold to processors 
represent prices paid on a delivered to the processing plant 
door basis and includes transportation cost, etc. 

TOTAL VALUE is the value of production sold. It 
excludes economic abandonment, cullage, and any portion 
of a crop not harvested. 

RAIL - TRUCK shipments are included in the 
straight rail shipments shown for each crop. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS ~ Represents the average 
number of packages per rail car based on tabulation of 
way-bills in prior years showing the contents of each car. 

MIXED CARS (RAIL) ~ Loadings by stations are 
pro- rated by commodities reported and tabulated in recent 
years. Less than 4 percent of the total equivalent carlots 
of vegetables and potatoes moved in this category in 1968-69. 

TRUCK SHIPMENTS are converted to equivalent 
carlots on the basis of a predetermined load factor. A 
minor difference of carlot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments may 
exist because of rounding. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT ~ The official 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to the most commonly 
used container. The following table gives the net weight 
used per container and the number of containers per hun- 
dredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1968-69 VEGETABLE SEASON 



Florida vegetables, Irish potatoes, strawberries 
and watermelons for fresh market and processing were 
marketed during the 1968-69 season for a total value esti- 
mated at $282, 582, 000, This was about 4 percent less than 
the previous seasonbut 10 percentmore than the estimated 
value in 1966-67. Quantities harvested and sold during 
1968-69 were an estimated 43,601,000 hundredweight, 
nearly 10 percent less than the 45, 771, 000 marketed during 
the previous season. 

Vegetable production at 29,150,000 cwt., sold for 
$236,947,000, accounted for two-thirds of the production 
and 84 percent of the gross F. O, B. value. Potatoes ac- 
counted for nearly 17 percent of the total production but 
only 8 percent of the sales value. Marketed melon pro- 
duction was an estimated 16 percent of the State' s total pro- 
duction but sales were only slightly more than 6 percent of 
the aggregate value of sales. Tomatoes, fresh and proc- 
essing, led all commodities in gross F. O, B. value. 

The production of vegetables in Florida is more than 
a seasonal operation. Planning and preparation for the new 
season w3re well underway before production from the 
current season had been completely marketed. Celery and 
eggplant seedbeds were planted for late July and early Au- 
gust transplanting. By September 1 about 1,200 acres of 
celery had been transplanted; 4,800 acres of sweet com 
and 12,900 acres of tomatoes had been seeded. Early 
peppers and a few eggplant had also been planted. 

Below normal temperatures and above normal rain- 
fall characterized the 1968-69 season. The 66 cold nights 
(minimum temperature 36° F or lower) in the Peninsula 
equaled the record set during the 1939-40 season. The 
third week of August was the hottest week of the summer 
in North and West Florida. In late September a tropical 
disturbance moved across South Florida preceded by squalls 
and heavy rains. 

In October, Hurricane Gladys hit the West Coast 
near Crystal River late Friday night, the 18th, and moved 
northeastward, passing offshore near St. Augustine the 19th. 
Vegetables were adversely affected in most areas. Early, 
scattered frost and freezing temperatures hit West Florida 
October 26-27. 

November temperatures averaged three to four de- 
grees below seasonal normal throughout the Peninsula. 
The first Peninsula frost occurred the 20th. Frost in 
mid-November terminated most tender vegetable harvest 
in North and West Florida. 

December continued cold — three to four degrees 
below normal. Frost occurred on the 5th and 6th. Heaviest 
damage occurred to tender vegetables in the Everglades. 
Frost was quite general up to the levee. Temperature 
durations 32° and below persisted up to 8 hours in colder 
locations. Gusty, cold winds did more damage at Ft. 
Myers-Immokalee than the cold. The most damaging tem- 
peratures of the season occurred on the mornings of the 



16th and 17th. Minimums in the 20s were recorded both 
mornings in North and Central areas with durations (at or 
below 28° F) ranging up to 12 hours. Minima in the Ever- 
glades on the 16th were in the low to mid-20s. The Lower 
East Coast had lows in the upper 20s and low 30s. The 
17th was 5 to 10 degrees warmer. Hastings cabbage was 
not seriously affected. Harvest of the early leaf crop at 
Zellwood was well advanced. Some leaf crops in the Ever- 
glades escaped severe damage, possibly from having a 
smog protection. Ice was observed in most vegetables. 
The Lower East Coast sustained damages ranging from in- 
significant to severe. Heaviest damage at Immokalee was 
inland. This was the most severe cold of the entire season. 

Januarj' temperatures averaged near 1 degree be- 
low seasonal normal in South and Central districts. Har- 
vest, culture and planting were widespread with the Hast - 
ings potato crop going in heavily during this period. 

February temperatures averaged 3 to 5degreesbe- 
low the seasonal normal; lowest were in the mid-20s to 
lower 30s on the 5th in colder locations of North and Cen- 
tral districts. This brought some discoloration in young 
cabbage, and damage to radishes, leaf crops and some 
celery in colder muckland areas. Potatoes at Hastii^s 
sustained spottj' damage. Strong, gusty winds in mid- 
February brought variable damage. 

March averaged 3 to 5 degreesbelow seasonal nor- 
mal over the Peninsula. Several occurrences of scattered 
frost were reported in northern and Central districts and 
isolated patches in the Everglades. Rainfall totaled 1 to 3 
inches above normal with locally heavj- rains over the 
southern districts on March 8. The generall}' adverse 
weather caused spring crops to be prospectively later than 
normal. Replanting of tender vegetables and melons was 
quite heavy in most Central areas. Plant City strawberries 
and spring vegetables were damaged by the excessive rain. 

April was generally favorable for growing crops. 
Showers persisted. Planting in late April was confined to 
radishes in the muckland producing areas and sweet corn 
in Central and North Florida. 

By early May, harvest was rapidly drawing to a 
close along the Lower East Coast. Potatoes were in full 
volume harvest in the Hastings area and sweet corn volume 
was heavy in the Everglades. Immokalee watermelons 
were at peak of harvest. 

During the first half of June, celery and sweet com 
were available in Central areas. Potatoes were still in 
quantity in the Hastings area with cucumbers, peppers and 
melons available in Central and North Florida. In late 
June, transportation was short, especialh'for melons, and 
reports of labor shortage persisted in some instances but 
not as acute as reported earlier in some southern areas. 

By early July, harvest was confined to sweet corn, 
watermelons and miscellaneous southern vegetables.

SNAP BEANS 
1968-69 



Production of snapbeans in Florida during the sea- 
sons of 1968-69 declined nearly 17 percent from that of the 
previous crop year. The 4.391,000 bushels marketed 
through "fresh" channels were down only 6 percent. At a 
$3. 90 average compared to $3. 77 the previous crop year, 
value of the 1968-69 fresh production at $17,116,000 was 
down only 3 percent. 

To prevent disclosure of beans utilized in process- 
ing from individual acreages, this portion of the crop is not 
published by counties and areas. Production at 437,000 
bushels is 62 percent less than the 1,153,000 bushels 
utilized the previous crop year. 

Fresh market production was grown primarily in 
the sands of the Lower East Coast. Pompano was the prin- 
cipal market point for bush varieties grown in the coastal 
strip from Ft. Lauderdale to West Palm Beach. Planting 
started in early September and continued through March as 
weather and soil conditions permitted. Dade County pro- 
duced lesser quantities of bush varieties with a good per- 
centage diverted to processors. Rather limited acreages, 
both fall and spring, were grown in the Everglades muck- 
lands for fresh market. Plant City apparently has increased 
acreages of bush varieties, especially for consumer pack. 

At Sanford and north of Gainesville, bush varieties 
continued as a small part of their fall and spring crops. 



First early harvest began in September in Gadsden 
County and continued until frost. Harvest from fall pole 
beans in Plant City were not much earlier than those pro- 
duced in south Dade. Plant City's harvest terminated with 
the December cold weather but Dade growers continued, 
late October into mid-May, marketing more than 1-1/2 
million hampers. 

Weather conditions were quite variable-with nor- 
mal fall rains. Hurricane borne winds and accompanying 
rains were adversely affective the week ended October 19. 
South Dade pole beans received 4 to 7 inches of rain. Gusty 
winds burned foliage and damaged small beans. This same 
week North Florida reported up to 3-1/2 inches of rain. 

Cold weather first hit the South Peninsula in late 
November, damaging some beans in the Everglades. A 
recurrence followed on December 5-6 with frost quite gen- 
eral even close to Lake Okeechobee. The coldest period 
of the year was December 15-16 and damage to beans along 
the Lower East Coast ranged from insignificant to severe. 
Temperatures and shower activity were moderate most of 
the remainder of the season. 

The Lower East Coast continued to harvest well into 
the spring months. While pole varieties continued to be 
picked by hand, more andmorebush beans are being picked 
with mechanical harvesters, even in North Florida.

CABBAGE 
1968-69 



A record cabbage crop was harvested on a continu- 
ing cheap market. If demand had warranted close cutting 
the production harvested would have been a record indeed. 
The 8,096,000 equivalent bags and crates marketed was 
3-1/2 percent more than the production marketed the pre- 
vious season. Intentions to plant 19, 000 acres was carried 
out. Considerable acreage was considered lost. Here 
again, had demand warranted cutting poorer quality and 
larger size, more acreage would have been harvested pro- 
ducing a higher volume. 

The trend during recent years has been to plant 
more to hybrid varieties. The wisdom of this is reflected 
in much higher yields the last 4 years. The 17, 600 acres 
harvested, cut 460 crates per acre, average, the same as 
ayear ago. Shipments were heavy during February, March 
and April, when two- thirds of the entire crop was shipped. 
The peak week of the season occurred in late April when 
807 straight rail and equivalent carlots by truck were re- 
ported. Prices averaged lightest during this period - 
slightly less than 1. 20 per unit. Quality was mostly good 
to excellent all season, but size was larger than that gen- 
erally desired. The crop sold for an estimated $11,486,000, 
down 16 percent from the previous year. 

Growers in Hastings planted about 50 percent of the 



total acreage. Early transplanting got underway the first 
week of September and continued until about January 25. 
Transplanting was rather general duringmost of this period 
in other areas. North Central growers continued trans- 
planting into March. 

Hurricane borne rains reduced early plantings, es- 
pecially in parts of the Hastings and North Central areas. 
Flagler County and Samsula in Volusia County were sub- 
jected toexcessive rainfall, some replantingwas necessary. 

Early harvest was erratic, yields were down and 
multiple cuttings were necessary. Later, heads matured 
more evenly such that a "once over" with a mechanical 
harvester might have been practical. 

The freeze of mid-December was not too adversely 
affective, but resulted in some leaf bum and dehydration. 

A very small percentage of bulk large head cabbage 
was diverted to kraut processors. Harvest continued for 
a longer period in the Samsula-Sanford-Zellwood area, 
second in importance acreagewise, in the State. 

The Everglades crop is the only acreage grown on 
Florida's mucklands. This acreage plus the adjacent sand- 
lands of South Florida made this the third largest producer 
of cabbage. West Central Counties have come into increas- 
ing importance the last few years, and now ranks fourth.

CANTALOUPS 
1969 



Florida's cantaloup acreage for harvest increased 
200 acres over last year. Production was only about 3 
percent higher and .thus, yield per acre decreased some 14 
percent. The total crop value was $547,000. For the 
second consecutive year, value per unit increased. It was 
up 13 percent to $7. 60 per hundredweight. North Florida 
produced 33 percent of the total crop on about one-third of 



the harvested acreage. 

Harvest was nearly complete in the Ft. Myers- 
Immokalee area by the first week of June. Harvest con- 
tinued northward as the fields matured. Quality and size 
were mostly very good last spring. The drier weather 
during June made for an excellent harvest period.

CELERY 
1968-69 



The gross value of Florida celery during 1968-69 
was $25,034,000 compared to $22,336,000 the previous 
year. The average value per crate was $3. 31 for the 1968- 
69 season, an increase of 23^ over the previous season. 
Growers planted 12,800 acres compared to 12,400 the 
previous year. 

The crop is grown exclusively in four areas. The 
Everglades is the principal area of production with 80 per- 
cent of the State's planted acreage. Supplies were avail- 
able from late October through mid-June. The other pro- 
ducing areas are Central Florida, Sarasota and Island 
Grove. Cutting began at Zellwood in early November and 
was terminated in mid-December to start again in late 
April and continue into June. The sandland crop at Sanford 
was harvested primarily during January, February and 
March. Harvest from Oviedo muckland started in early 
January and continued through late May. Harvest at Sara- 



sota is primarily during January, February and March 
but a light production continued into May. Celery in the 
Island Grove area is grown in the muckland soils of Ala- 
chua County. Harvest in this area was during April, May 
and June. 

The Florida Fresh Fruit Exchange administers the 
celery marketing order. Their field supervisors provide 
planting, harvesting and production data. In cooperation 
SRS assembles these data into weekly and monthly reports 
to the participating industry. 

Most acreage lost by natural causes was attributed 
primarily to December freeze. The 1,000 acres lost in 
the spring was partly from bolting. Marketing conditions 
and shortage of labor necessitated economic abandonment 
of otherwise marketable celery.

SWEET CORN 
1968-69 



Florida growers marketed 10,426,000 crates of 
sweet corn during 196«-69, 8 percent more than the 
9,644,000 crates sold during 1967-68. Value of sales at 
$26,726,000 was 8 percent more than the previous crop 
year. The average value per unit was $2. 56 the same as 
in 1967-68. 

Of the 64, 500 acres planted only 56,600 acres were 
harvested, or 8 percent more planted and 6 percent more 
harvested than in the previous crop year. 

Planting for fall harvest was almost exclusively in 
the Everglades mucklandsand began in early August. Har- 
vest got underway in early October, and volvune increased 
until late November. The December freeze severely dam- 
aged the crop and killed most of the remaining corn in the 
Everglades. Winter supplies came primarily from the 



Pompano area supplemented by the Ft Myers-Immokalee 
and Dade County areas. Losses of late winter corn by the 
mid-December freeze were later replanted and harvested 
as a part of the spring crop. The Everglades area came 
into spring harvest in April and continued until terminated 
by heavy rains in early June. 

Seeding started at Zellwood in early March. Har- 
vest started in late May. Volume supplies were available 
most of June. Harvest continued into early July. Seasonal 
rains were adversely affective. Some acreage was never 
harvested. 

Other minor producing areas are located in West 
Central, North and extreme West Florida. Harvest from 
these areas occured in the spring months.

CUCUMBERS 
1968-69 



During 1968-69, Florida's cucumber production 
decreased to 2. 800. 000 bushels, 26 percent less than the 
previous crop year. Since harvested acreage only in- 
creased about 2 percent the decrease can be attributed 
mainly to the 28 percent decrease in yield. Value per unit 
averaged $4. 36 per bushel and total crop value amounted 
to $12,218,000. Pickle cucvunbers, other than "O'nite" 
dill, are estimated separately and are excluded from these 
data. 



Cucumbers are especially adaptable to Florida's 
sandy soils and are grown in all vegetable areas except the 
mucklands. Nearly one-half of the harvested acreage is 
located in Southwest Florida counties. About 37 percent 
of the production comes from this area. 



Earlyfall harvest,mainly. for local markets started 
in September in the Webster-Wauchula and northern vicin- 
ities. The supplies from all producmg areas remained 
light through most of the fall season. Mid-December 
freezes terminated most harvest In iht Ft Mvers-Im- 
md^alee area, considerable salvage harvest occurred as 
many of the older fields were hit by the cold Some light 
supplies were available from the Pompano-Dade area dur- 
ingthis time. Most of the shipments during late December 
into Februarj' included imports marketed through Florida 
channels. Supplies increased during April and Mav to 
volume levels for the year as production came from all 
areas. In early June. North Florida was the principal 
source of the remaining supplies as harvest terminated 
southward. The North Central ireas grew both fall and 
spring table stock and pickles. Pickles moved into fresh 
(O'nite dill) channels and into regular pickle processing.

EGGPLANT 
1968-69 



Eggplant production in Florida during the 1968-69 
season, at 961,000 bushels, was down from the 976,000 
bushel harvest of the previous season. The decrease resulted 
from lower yields as the planted acreage was the same both 
years. The average value per bushelat $3. 39 increased 
the total value of sales nearly 5 percent to $3,257, 000. 



Shipments were reported almost every month, and 
were relatively steady, bymonths, November through Feb- 
ruary. A marked increase got underway in March with the 
higher level maintained through much of June. May ship- 
ments were the heaviest of the season. Imports moving 
through Florida channels were reported during January 
and each month thereafter into May. These are included 
in the shipments data and percentages of movement shown. 

Pompano is the principal area of continuing pro- 
duction. Lesser quantities are available in the fall and 



duringthe spring-early summer months from widely scat- 
tered plantings throughout the State. 

Harvest began in North and North Central areas in 
late September , increasing to State-wide by late October. 
Har\'est in all areas except Pompano was terminated by 
frost either in early or mid-December, and possibly 
earlier. The mid-December freeze adversel}' affected pro- 
duction at Pompano and in the small acreage growTi at Ft. 
Myers-Immokalee. No acreage was a complete loss. Sup- 
plies at Pompano were relatively stead}^ during the winter 
months, increasing in March as plants grew out of the 
freeze damage. 

Spring harvest began at Ft. Myers-Immokalee in 
April and at Plant City in May. By early June, Pompano 
harvest declined to near completion but scattered plantings 
in North and Central Florida came into production, contin- 
ing to the end of the season.

ESCAROLE 
1968-69 



Escarole and chicory (endive) production in Florida 
during 1968-69 was estimated at 3,212,000 crates com- 
pared with 3,024,000 crates sold the previous crop year. 
The 8,000 acres planted was 12 percent greater than the 
acreage planted the previous season. The average F. O. B. 
value per crate was $1. 82 or $0. 10 below the previous 
year. The value of the crop was $5, 862, 000. 

Escarole and chicory are grown primarily in muck 
soil. Harvest usually begins in late October and continues 
into June. March and April are usually peak months of 
shipment. The Everglades was the principal source of 
supply with 72 percent of the planted acreage and 70 per- 
cent of the State's production. Light seeding began in Sep- 
tember and increased as the season advanced. By early 



October thinning of first plantings was underu'ay with light 
harvest for local market beginning in early November 
Weather in early fall was generally wet. Seeding and cul- 
ture schedules were hard to maintain. Damage from the 
December freezes was light to severe with stripping nec- 
essary. Harvest began declining after mid-April and con- 
tinued in a limited way through May. Zellwood is the sec- 
ond area of production with generally two periods of heavy 
harvest. The first period began in late October, increased 
to volume by mid-November and started declining in early 
December. The second period of heavy production began 
in early April, increased to volume by late April and con- 
tinued into early June. Some acreage was planted on the 
warmer sandland between muck pockets, attempting to 
insure continuous supplies.

LETTUCE 
1968-69 



Florida lettuce production for the 1968-69 season 
was 414, 000 hundredweight compared to 360,000 the 
previous year. The 53,000 acres plantedwas an increase 
of 500 acres over the previous j'ear. Production was valued 
at $4,057,000. Nearly 53percentof the cropwas planted in 
the Everglades, 27 percent in the North Central area and 19 
percent in the West Central area. 

Heaviest production was in Romaine lettuce followed 
by Boston, Iceberg, leaf lettuce, and Bibb. Intrastate con- 
sumption is rather heavy especially in Iceberg and Bibb 
varieties. 

Most muckland areas are directly seeded and thinned 
to normal stands at the proper stage of growth. Seeding 
was underway in the Everglades, Lake Placid, Sarasota, 
and Zellwood in September . However , recurring rain slow- 
ed planting tempo in the early fall. Shipments from the 
Everglades were distributed over a long period. Light sup- 



plies were available for local market in late October. Sup- 
plies of variable amounts continued throughout most of the 
season which ended in mid-May. /ellwood production was 
heaviest during the fall and spring periods of the year 
Early harvest for local market began during October. Sup- 
plies did not increase to volume until mid to late November 
because of the wet fall. Supplies were rather limited dur- 
ing the midseason, but began to increase again in April 
and continued through May. Iceberg, Boston and Romaine 
were grown at Sanford - Samsula, with light supplies of 
Romaine at Oviedo. Sarasota and Lake Placid grew var- 
ious varieties and harvested over an extended period from 
December through April. 

Iceberg lettuce is packed primarily in half - LA 
crates, Boston in eastern lettuce crates. Romaine in Uni- 
versal crates.

GREEN PEPPERS 
1968-69 



Florida's green pepper crop totaled 16, 700 harvest- 
ed acres-500 acres more than that of the previous year, 
produced 5,679, 000 bushels — 14 percent less than lastyear . 
and totaled $21,050,000-18 percent lower than the year be- 
fore. The major producing area was again made up of the 
Pompano- Martin area in the southeastern counties with 46 
percentof the production. The southwesternarea produced 
nearly 40 percent of the total production on about 46 percent 
of the harvested acreage. Central and North Florida ac- 
counted for the balance. 

Transplanting of the normally small fall acreage in 
Central Florida began in late August - early September. 
Seeding in all South Florida areas increased sharply dur- 
ing September. High temperatures in early September ad- 
versely affected some of the early Pompano- Martin acre- 
ages, causing some resetting. Late September rains slowed 
most activities . By mid-October , older plants in the Pom- 
pano area had begun setting fruit butwere retarded by ab- 



normal fall weather conditions. High winds and excessive 
rains continually plagued the crop during the early part of 
the fall season. Indictative of a good plant recovery were 
the increasing early December shipments. Mid and late 
December frost and freezes curtailed immediate supplies. 
Ft. Myers-Immokalee plantings were seriously affected and 
production was sharply curtailed. Shipments climbed back 
to a relatively moderate plateau and remained therethrough 
mid- March. Pompano remained the principal source. 
Transplanting and thinning of the spring crop became quite 
active in late March. All areas were hit by cold winds and 
heavy rains during this period. Increasing supplies began in 
late March as Ft. Myers-Immokalee 's production supple- 
mented shipments from the Pompano area. An additional 
increase during May occurred as Central areas came into 
production. Harvest in the Pompano and Ft. Myers-Im- 
mokalee areas was virtually complete by late May. Central 
and North Florida supplied the market during June and all 
areas had only limited shipments by the end of that month.

POTATOES 
1968-69 



Florida growers of Irish potatoes produced a record 
crop in 1968-69. The 7, 264, 000 hundredweightwas 7 per- 
cent greater than that produced in 1967-68 and exceeds all 
previous years in production sold. 

The 180 cwt. yield was the highest for the combined 
winter-spring season. Hastings spring yield in 1961 and 
again in 1963 was higher, averaging 190 each of these j'ears. 
The best average winter yield was 185 cwt. in 1962 which 
was only 2 cwt. better than the near record obtained in 1954. 

The largest acreage was grown during the 1956-57 
season, when 57, 000 acres were planted and 54, 300 were 
brought toharvest. Production exceeded demand and some 
was abandoned for economic reasons, otherwise, the 7.6 
millionhundredweight crop was an all time high for Florida. 

The price per cwt. at $3. 10 average was the lowest 
since 1963. This was primarily due to the lateness of the 
season at Hastings. The average there was$l. 00 less than 
the winter group average. Plantings at Hastings are mostly 
to white-skinned varieties and are utilized heavily by the 
chipping industry. A good percentage is grown under con- 
tract. It appears open market sales fell below contract 
prices. Very few red-skinned varieties were utilized by 
the chipping industry from South Florida's winter crop, a 
disappointment to growers in the area. 



Planting started in the Everglades muckland early 
crop in September and was practically complete by Octo- 
ber 1. Seeding of reds started by this time, increasing 
sharply by mid-month. Some rot occurred from excessive 
rains in October. Some acreage was replanted. By late 
October Dade County began planting - heavily to "reds". 
Planting of "whites" in south Hillsborough got underway in 
late November, on land close to the warm waters of Cock- 
roach Bay. The mid-December freeze burned tops in 
"reds" in the Everglades and in "inland area" fields at Ft. 
Myers. "Whites" sustained no visible damage. Dade 
Coimty crops also escaped significant damage also, but in 
both areas growth was slowed. 

At Hastings planting started in late December at 
Federal Point and in Flagler Countj'. By mid-January 
planting had become general and by mid-Februarj' it was 
practically complete. Recurring rain, wind and low tem- 
peratures caused relatively minor damage in late February 
and March. 

Harvest in Dade Countj' was heavy during March 
and April, extending into May. Hastings started in mid- 
April but May was the month of volume harvest. Light 
supplies were available most of June.

SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1969 



Spinach for processing was grown in the mucklands 
of Orange and Lake Coxinties. Harvested acres declined to 
1, 300 from 1, 900 the previous year. The 8. 800 tons use- 
able spinach delivered to plants was 5 percent less than 
the previous winter. 



The value per unit was based on useable spinach 
delivered to the processing plant. Utilization is mainly by 
plants located in the southeastern States. This crop can 
stand considerable cold. Frost is desirable from time to 
time for weed control.

SQUASH 
1968-69 



Florida produced 1,371,000 bushels of squash dur- 
ing 1968-69, about 3 percent less than the previous year. 
The 8,200 acres planted was 1,000 acres less than the 
previous year. The crop sales value was estimated at 
$6 , 261 , 000 , making the average price of $4. 57 an increase 
of $0.26 per bushel compared with 1967-68. Nearly 57 per- 
cent of the planted acreage was located in the southeastern 
area. The entire southern part of the State accounted for 
73 percent of the planted acreage and harvested 82 percent 
of the total production. 

Shipments were made from September through July 
with volume supplies from December through May. Har- 
vest was active in the northern and Central areas of the 
State until terminated by frost and cold weather in late 
November. 

The principal market outlets for the important 
Lower East Coast were in Pompano and Homestead. Yellow 
crooknecked varieties dominated the plantings in Dade 
Coimty. During December that area became the principal 



source for yellow crooknecked squash. Dade and Pompano 
areas supplied the majority of the volume with limited sup- 
plies from the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area during February. 
Cold weather ajid excessive rain during Decem be i . January 
and February were generally adversely affective to the !• n- 
der crop and held supplies at a lower level. 

Planting for spring harvest got underway in late Feb- 
ruary in Central areas. Seeding progressed northward into 
North and West areas during March. 

First spring harvest began at Plant City in early 
April . All varieties were available but ran heavily to yellow 
crookneck. Statewide spring harvest declined sharply in 
late May but continued very limited into July. 

Florida produces acorn and butternut, hard squash 
packed usually in Universal crates; yellow crookneck, 
yellow straightneck, whites or pattypan, and zucchini, 
packed mostly in 1/2 Universal; also, yellow crookneck 
are still packed heavily in bushel hampers.

STRAWBERRIES 
1968-69 



Production of Florida's strawberries increased 20 
percent over the previous year. This increase production 
was on a harvested acreage decrease of 16 percent from 
the 1900 acres of last year. The yield of 976 flats was the 
highest within the last ten years. 



About 39 percent of the production came from the 
Hillsborough County area and 32 percent from Dade County. 
Shipments in March accounted for 43 percent of the total. 
February and March had the next heaviest movement of 28 



and 22 percent, respectively. 

Transplanting was well underway during October in 
all areas. Light harvest started in the Dade County area 
in late December. Supplies increased to moderate avail- 
ability in early February in the West Central areas. Ma- 
turity was retarded in the northern and central areas by 
the adverse weather of February. Quality of berries was 
generally very good in all areas. Most fields were opened 
to the public in the Lower East Coast and West Central 
areas in mid-April. Only local supplies were available 
from North Florida during early May.

TOMATOES 
1968-69 



During the 1968-69 season, Florida marketed an 
estimated 15,307,000 equivalent fort}' -pound crates of 
fresh tomatoesfrom 47,500 harvested acres. The F. O. B. 
price averaged S5. 29 per crate. An additional 1. 580, 000 
equivalent fortj^-pound crates, utilized by processors, 
averaged SO. 60 per crate delivered to the canning plant. 
The entire crop was valued at $81,916,000, down 11 per- 
cent from that of the previous season. 

Although it becomes increasingly difficult to keep 
track of the actual har\'ested use of acreage planted for 
mature-green and vine-ripe utilization, tomatoes for ma- 
ture-green harvest represented approximately 87 percent 
of the total 49,100 acres planted in 1968-69. Vine-ripe 
production, at 3,753.000 crates, was 17 percent less than 
the previous year' s vine-rij^ production but accounted for 
nearly one-fourth of the fresh market supplies. 

Seedbed preparations began in August, First trans- 
planting occurred in September as direct-to-fieid seeding 



continued in all areas. Heavy rains, general to most areas, 
retarded progressive development of seedlings durii^ mid- 
September. The small acreage in North Central maintained 
good growth and early har\'est started in late October. 
Harvest was short duration because of November frost 
Disease, excessive moisture and recurring cold plagued 
most areas during the entire fall and winter seasons. Har- 
vest of mature-greens was virtually complete in all areas, 
except Dade Countj',bef ore the mid-December freeze. Ma- 
ture-green production from Dade Countj' and vine-ripes 
were the source of Florida's winter season tomatoes. Dade 
Coimty volume remained steady into the spring season. 

Light harvest of spring tomatoes began in the Ft. 
Myers-Immokalee area in early April. This was a delaj^ed 
beginning because of adverse weather. Harvest commenced 
northward as the weather warmed during the season. Late 
May to early June was the period of heaviest movement. 
Processing tomato har\'est followed the completion of fresh 
market harvest and supplies were available into early July.

WATERMELONS 
1968-69 



In 1968-69 Florida marketed 6,955,000 hundred- 
weight of watermelons from 53,500 harvested acres. At 
$2.50 per hundredweight, the total value of 317,388,000 
was 10 percent greater than that of 1967-68. Earliest 
har\'est began in April in the Ft. Myers-Immokalee area. 
These southwestern counties^with only 21 percent of the 
planted acreage, produced 34 percent of the total. South 
Florida and West Florida produced 18 percent and 12 per- 
cent, respectively. The northern and Central areas ac- 
count for about 44 percent of the planted acreage and pro- 
duced 36 percent of the total harvested. 

Planting started in mid-November in the Immokalee 
area and finished in January. Other South and South Cen- 
tral areas began seeding in January and planting progressed 



northward until the entire crop was in the ground by mid- 
April, During early January young plants in the Immokalee 
area were adversely affected by weather, however, by mid 
to late month conditions were improving. Some spot re- 
setting was necessary. During February winds rolled vines 
and burned foliage. Some reseeding in Central areas oc- 
curred during this period. Plants in the Central and north- 
ern areas were subjected to prolonged drought during their 
early growing period. 

Harvest began in the Immokalee area in mid-April 
and progressed northward during the season. Peak volume 
was reached during June and then tapered off rapidly in 
July. Quality and size were good in most northern and 
western areas where irrigation partly offset effects of 
early drought.

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT 



Prior to 1969. vegetable and melon production in- 
cluded quantities not sold because of low prices, lack of 
transportation, shortage of labor and other economic 
factors. The Department has changed its definition of pro- 

1. Snap Beans: 1968 Spring - 127, 000 bushels 

2. Celery: 1967 Winter - 703, 000 crates 

Spring - 310,000 crates 
1968 Winter - 157,000 crates 

There are some crops such as watermelons and to- 
matoes which are seldom completely utilized. These com- 
modities are estimated solely on the basis of quantities sold, 
and no attempt is made to classify unharvested production 
as economic abandonment. 



duction and now reports in yield and production estimates 
only the quantities sold. Listed below are additional quan- 
ities which were abandoned due to economic factors during 
the 1967. 1968 and 1969 seasMis: 

Celery (con't) 1968 Spring - 429. 000 crates 
1969 Sprii^ - 213,000 crates 

3. Sweet Corn: 1969 Spring - 117, 000 crates 

4. Escarole: 1968 Winter - 160, 000 crates 

Potatoes continue to be estimated on both a total 
production and production actually utilized basis. How- 
ever, in Florida there is seldom economic abandonment 
in potatoes.
